Attendees of the 2013 San Francisco LGBT Pride Parade witnessed a record number of intactivists (those who advocate for genital autonomy) participating in this annual celebration of sexual freedom. The Bay Area Intactivists contingent was made up of nearly sixty men, women, and children who traversed Market Street carrying banners, waving flags, and riding bicycles. One of the songs blaring from a bike trailer in the contingent was "Leave Those Babies Alone", Agron Belica's high-energy rap that is critical of both infant circumcision and those who promote it. Bay Area Intactivists has seen unprecedented growth over the last few years and its members expect this trend to continue as a result of their work to raise awareness of the damage caused by infant circumcision and other forms of forced genital cutting.
